    Where are SYIL products made?

    SYIL machine tools are designed, manufactured and tested in our factories in China. Quality Assurance (QA) procedures for each machine are developed and controlled by our in-house engineering team. A SYIL employee audits the quality of every device at the factory before approving its shipment. Upon request, such audit can also be performed by an external auditor like, e.g., SGS. Components and accessories are either made by us or sourced from around the globe, including Germany, Japan, and Switzerland.

    What can I expect for manufacturing quality?

    You can expect every CNC machine to meet the highest international quality standards for CNC devices. Naturally, each machine meets specifications recorded in our inspection report. The castings are high quality. Be trusted that SYIL's castings come with consistent wall and web thickness. We use modern CNC surface grinders to perform the way grinding. Final fitting is completed by craftsmen using hand scraping techniques. Ballscrews are hand fitted and inspected. Electric motors are built to the highest standards at modern factories.
